Intrigued as to whose voice it was narrating the design work over on karlssonwilker’s portfolio site, I was reminded of the very established graphic work of Paul Sahre. Operating a small design studio “fondly” referred to as O.O.P.S (Office of Paul Sahre), a quick look will reveal a plethora of great book works, regular illustration spots, music visuals and a sense of humour. A closer look, will uncover a number of satellite sites for his dedicated sidelines which are occasionally random but absolutely worth your time.
A case in point are Paul’s illoops! illustrations, in fact. A clever’n’sharp style that uses design tactics with photography and found imagery to create visual one-liners for The New York Times Op-ed, Book Review and Week-In-Review pages, Freakenomics and Bloomberg Businessweek (to name a few.)
It’s a vast, all round and continuously surprising body of work and, most importantly, as honest as it is great – just see the regrets section on his site.
